David Orr, "Environmental Literacy: Education as if the Earth Mattered." October 1992




"For the most part. . .we are still educating the young as if there were no planetary emergency." Yet, continues Orr, the environmental crisis is "first and foremost a crisis of mind, perception, and values-hence, a challenge to those institutions presuming to shape minds, perceptions, and values. It is an educational challenge." Our society must embrace and implement new manners of teaching that emphasize and prepare people for ecologically integrated lives and livelihoods. Orr presents five measures necessary to transform the modern curriculum and describes the goals and basic tenets of ecological education.
